Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term nictitating
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for nictating

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Can I make a rhyme, furnished so pupils might see
Terse pleasing overviews, somehow informing, and oh how provided free?
Affect or thrash look all too manifest. But is tapping?
Pulsating, blink? - or stopping, churning? Damn! I deserted zapping!
I reason affecting and similarly crumpling, but plainly ought I
- blurt meanings so - innuendos fetched with equations spry?

So smart that woman from Lithgrove.
